Masks

we are lost into the fire
but time is not within our minds
and words expose the depths within
tearing trauma deep inside

searing light dancing by
the lost ones inside their minds
channeling madness in the dark
wakeful silence holding close

the masquerade dances on
hidden thoughts without faces
cutting through your
frightened eyes

the time is now, the masks collide
their faces dancing without minds
why we never hoped to care
to see the sorrows exposed

the spotlights shine on their cold stares
the dust creeps inside our minds
mindless forms without thought
find existence outside time

will they see you?
they won't love you
fading away
